At my parents’ house this weekend, Scott and Johnathan were watching a nature program with my dad. My mom, in another room, said to my dad, “I don’t want them seeing anything that is too disturbing.”
I could see the television over the back of the couch from where I sat in the dining room and knew it was a nature program, but didn’t really pay attention to what they were watching. I said, “They aren’t seeing anything we didn’t watch with dad as kids.”
We are not a sports oriented family. Kaylee loves to play softball and is very gifted in it. We love going to her games. I’m looking forward to the boys being in sports. But to watch any other kind of sports or even care about any other kind of sports simply doesn’t happen in my family.

There’s a woman I know who is young – maybe 21-years-old or even younger. She has three children by three men and has never been married. She lives with her mother. Her current boyfriend does not live with her, but he does spend the night often. She gambles regularly. And, she is deeply spiritual. You won’t find someone who talks about Jesus Christ more than her.

So, I told him, “No.” He put the can back then pointed my attention to pasta made in the same shapes.Pin It
